. the state seemed to spend more energy on accelerating their projects at the expense of local projects and so we recommended and oppose at this point in time, until we can see some improvement in what they plan to put in the legislation. and lastly, on the assembly side, ab842 is a measure that we have seen before, and it is on page 7 of the matrix and it would eliminate all further bond funding for the high speed rail program which will have the effect of initially shutting down the initial construction segment as well as the funding for blended service and connectivity projects that we are dependent upon in the bay area and in san francisco. so we recommended opposed to that measure. the previous measures all failed and we think that this one is destined for the same failure but we will have to see and work on it. >> two measures on the senate side that we are recommended support, first is sb 219. and it deals with extending the double fine zones on state routes, 1 and 101 in san francisco, indefinitely. and there has been a long history of first initiating the double fine zones and then co

energy to really fill in all the gaps. what makes me the saddest is when diag, and i and police chief suhr get the texts on the mornings where we see a victim of crime. and what i usually do is put a face on that. and i get characteristics. young black male. hispanic male. victim, 2 a.m. gunshot wound, sf general, did not survive. and i try to put my own face on that, which is the kids that i see that we try to graduate up. or middle school kids that i would have seen. what could i have done for them. whether some counseling or guidance. or some support to the family. and we can be very creative in this effort. we can show the country by coming together we can do things throughout the whole continuum to provide that support. and we know we have the answers. because oftentimes we have seen those circumstances where we did bring out a troubled family out of a bad environment. but we put them some place and then two weeks later that individual will go back to where they were. and get into a situation. so we know that it isn't just the physical environment we have to change. it's also the
